Behaviour of our drivers towards our customers is important because &ldquo;the driver is our ambassador to the customer", as Roland Jost, director of Jost Group said.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>"The choice was not an easy one, as our group of companies has almost 2,000 drivers," said Roland Jost. "Finally, the winner of the competition comes this year from Skiptrans: Cosmin Marian Corduneanu, who has been our driver for more than three years. Cosmin is working on a truck that transports air freight between the main airports in Europe". This is the first time that this award has been given to a driver from the subsidiary Skiptrans, since its creation in 2007.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>This award means Cosmin can do his job aboard this Mercedes-Benz Actros equipped with a 630-horsepower engine and very luxurious interior. "It's a reward for a driver who loves his job and is dedicated to it. He will undoubtedly be even more motivated to continue in the same way and will motivate other drivers to compete for such an award in the near future, because we will be holding this competition again and we will be offering such rewards", Roland Jost commented.&nbsp;&ldquo;It is also our way of motivating our drivers and showing them that their efforts to be high-level professional drivers are not in vain and that they will be rewarded for their hard work, are the key to this process; these trucks are exceptional&rdquo;.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>The administrator of Jost Group drew attention to the importance of driver behavior in reducing fuel consumption and therefore directly related to the level of pollution. Analysis of the operational parameters of the fleet shows that the group consumes more than 10,000 liters of diesel per week just because drivers left the engines idle when the trucks were at a standstill. An awareness campaign is underway, personalized monitoring of each driver is in place and new equipment linked to solar panels is currently being tested. The aim is to reduce fuel consumption and to minimize the impact to the environment!</p> <p></p> <p><a href=""></a></p>11196 Job Positions available (employees)Have a look at the list of our job offers !Tue, 17 Jan 2012 18:47:12 +01002021-04-26T15:18:42+02:00<h4><em><strong>&nbsp;</strong></em><em><strong><span style="vertical-align: inherit;"><span style="vertical-align: inherit;"><span style="vertical-align: inherit;"><span style="vertical-align: inherit;">Nous cherchons, pour engagement imm&eacute;diat:</span></span></span></span></strong></em></h4> <p></p> <h4><strong>Jost Group recherche&nbsp;pour son site de&nbsp;Aubange</strong></h4> <ul> <li> <p>Administratif en Logistique avec exp&eacute;rience similaire</p> </li> <li> <p>Responsable Entrep&ocirc;t 5 ans d&rsquo;exp&eacute;rience dans une fonction similaire</p> </li> </ul> <p>&nbsp;<span>CV&nbsp;&agrave;

This policy sets out objectives which can be measured by KPIs. Control processes, audits and statistical analyses are also essential to the continuous assessment of our quality level.</p> <p>In concrete terms, some of the most significant KPIs that Jost Group has put in place are those relating to meeting the lead times and on-time delivery requirements for our customers, the reduction of CO2 emissions, as well as the respect of safety rules (PPE, on-site safety, ...).</p> <p>Upstream of the operational processes and information on specific customer requirements are collected from the sales department and via the CRM.&nbsp;</p> <p>Our customers also require certifications from our company, which are proof of our ability to operate to the highest degree of professionalism with regards to processes and systems and ensuring that these are properly renewed. Jost Group, as a service provider, is responsible for ensuring internal and external compliance to legal requirements and operating standards.</p> <p>Jost Group also has a list of criteria for selecting and assessing its suppliers in order to find out whether they are certified, and if so, to ensure that they comply with these certifications through regular audits and interviews.</p> <p>A more specific project is currently underway with our suppliers with regards to the responsible purchasing charter and the ethical charter, in connection with our CSR.</p> <p>Finally, as part of our work, we manage quality-related customer requests and complaints, if any, and annually compare them with our Group Quality policy to ensure that our targets and operational efficiency are in line with what our customers expect and require. This is done in close collaboration with the prevention advisers and environmental and hygiene managers.</p> <p><strong>The different certifications, such as ISO 9001 and 14.0001, how to obtain them? What do they consist of and what do they bring to a company?</strong></p> <p>There are a large number of certifications: ISO, IFS, FCA, SQAS, Covid-19...&nbsp;</p> <p>In order to obtain these certifications, we must ensure that our organization meets these international requirements on every point, and if a deviation is found, discuss the adjustments to be made with the managers and staff concerned. After implementation, internal audits are carried out to assess the degree of efficiency after the adjustments. The next step is to undergo audits with representatives of the relevant external bodies who will ensure that we meet the established criteria. Once these certifications have been granted, we accompany the follow-up audits each year to ensure that the requirements of the certifications we have been awarded are still being met.</p> <p>These certifications are essential to validate the work carried out internally with all our colleagues and to give our customers the certainty that we check our processes and that we are continuously improving and enhancing our performance and quality levels.&nbsp;</p> <p>To explain in concrete terms what these certifications correspond to, ISO 9001 is an internationally-recognized standard that brings together in a single document all the expertise and know-how of the last few decades in the field of quality management. Companies describe, analyze, measure and continuously improve their processes.</p> <p>Our entire organization is working according to this certification.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>ISO 14.001 </strong>is a set of requirements that a company's environmental management system must meet.</p> <p>Jost Group is also <strong>IFS</strong>-certified. IFS certification demonstrates that the certified company has implemented appropriate processes to guarantee food and product safety, and that these processes take into account and apply customer specifications. We are involved in the logistics and warehousing part.&nbsp;</p> <p>Products that meet the European BIO (ORGANIC) label are subject to controls and that the European regulations regarding organic farming are respected. Jost Group gives this type of customer the certainty that the logistics portion carried out in our warehouses is fully compliant with these requirements. This work is carried out in active partnership with customers.&nbsp;</p> <p>We also have <strong>FCA</strong> certification. The Standard Feed Chain Alliance (formerly GMP Feed) is a reliable quality standard developed by and for the feed industry. It sets requirements for the production, processing, marketing, storage and transport of feed. Jost Group is involved in the transportation part.</p> <p>The chemical industries make extensive use of third-party logistics services to store, handle and transport chemicals.</p> <p>These chemical companies therefore need the assurance that these operations are carried out safely and in a manner that respects the environment and the health and safety of our employees and the public.</p> <p>The solution proposed to this operation is the <strong>SQAS</strong> standard. Jost Group carries out the SQAS self-assessment for its transportation of dangerous goods. This standard provides our customers and partners with information on safety, quality, environmental and health aspects. SQAS (Safety and Quality Assessment Systems) is a tool for uniformly assessing the quality, safety and environmental management systems of logistics service providers.&nbsp;</p> <p>Jost Group also holds a <strong>COP</strong> certification, which is the quality management system concerning the conformity of production, i.e.: initial assessment, measures relating to product conformity and provisions for continuous verification. Our workshops carry out the conversion of some of our vehicles. We are therefore required to comply with the rules that manufacturers must apply, and in particular to apply adequate procedures to ensure that our "production" complies with the approved types.</p> <p><strong>What are the quality control tools?</strong></p> <p>Records of the checks performed, KPIs, processes and procedures, instructions, analyses, efficiency assessments, statistics and audits are all control tools that we put in place to ensure that the defined objectives are being respected and met.</p> <p>In particular, KPIs must be relevant and measurable. It must be possible to maintain a link between what is expressed in the quality policy and what is going to be achieved.&nbsp;</p> <p>We have wonderful IT tools, developed in-house by our IT teams, enabling us to extract everything that has been done or will be done for a client. We can then, for example, see directly whether, on all deliveries made to a customer, on-time delivery requirements have been met.&nbsp;</p> <p>Our internal auditors, who undergo external training to keep them at the cutting edge of expertise, go into the field to ensure that procedures and instructions are properly followed and that our organization complies with the various international standards.</p> <p><strong>What are the main customer demands on a company that monitors its quality?</strong>&nbsp;</p> <p>Customers demand a consistently high level of service quality from their suppliers. They also expect that if a problem arises, it will be solved as quickly as possible and that it will not re-occur, which means that we will continuously improve. As soon as a non-conformity is detected, we will analyze it. We must identify the cause of the problem and implement all collective and preventive actions with the people concerned so that the non-compliance is rectified and does not recur. We have set ourselves the objective of responding within two hours at the most, even though the entire process can obviously take longer.</p> <p>We have regular meetings with our clients to discuss how we can improve our services and build ever more efficient partnerships.</p> <p>It is therefore truly proactive, open and transparent communication that is being put in place to ensure our operational experience and efficiency.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>What is the link between quality and innovation?</strong></p> <p>If we start from the premise that a company is often confronted with new points of attention, quality and innovation can meet those points. It is always necessary to be creative, flexible and rigorous in dealing with these points before they turn into incidents. Where necessary, corrections must also be made with a perfect balance between innovation and process or even systems implementation and therefore take the time to innovate.&nbsp;</p> <p>The advantage of a company like Jost Group, where we are constantly looking to stay one step ahead, is that we can offer solutions upstream, prevent risks and therefore innovate.<strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><strong>How to be a good quality representative?</strong></p> <p>The first thing you need to do to be a good quality representative is to know the company you work for like the back of your hand.</p> <p>Then, you have to be meticulous, rigorous, methodical and above all have good analytical skills.&nbsp;</p> <p>The biggest challenge for a quality manager is to find the most suitable processes and to optimize flows. Clear and interconnected processes and procedures, supported by systems, are very important. This becomes essential when the company is large or when dealing with a group of companies.</p> <p>In any organization, there are weaknesses and risks to be identified. It is up to us to detect and implement the best solution, through analysis, to prevent these weaknesses from becoming a problem.&nbsp;</p> <p>Finally, one of the most important skills for a quality manager is his or her ability to work with a wide variety of profiles and to get them to work together with a common goal of continuous improvement.</p>31229 Group signed the IRU Charter Improving the reception of drivers at delivery sitesWed, 30 Dec 2020 08:24:43 +01002021-01-14T09:47:07+01:00<p>The road transport industry is the backbone of our economy and plays an essential role in people&rsquo;s daily lives and mobility. However, the sector is facing serious social, labour and economic challenges and is experiencing a serious driver shortage, which was only temporarily alleviated by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.&nbsp;</p> <p>As industry stakeholders, we are committed to reversing this trend and are taking action to increase the attractiveness of the sector and highlight the quality of the jobs available. The world road transport organisation&nbsp;(IRU) has joined forces with&nbsp;the European Shippers&rsquo; Council (ESC) and the European Transport Workers&rsquo; Federation (ETF) to improve the current situation with a charter.&nbsp;</p> <p>The primary objective of this charter is to improve the treatment of drivers at loading and unloading sites and thereby improve working conditions, increase operational efficiency, and ultimately, contribute to making the driving profession more attractive.</p> <p>We recognise the importance of adhering to common values and promoting cooperation on the ground, to tackle efficiently the current challenges we face. Our partnership is therefore based on the following shared principles:</p> <ul> <li>Road transport is vital to mobility, the supply chain and the global economy.</li> <li>Professional drivers are a key asset in the supply chain.</li> <li>The severity and urgency of the shortage of professional drivers necessitates urgent action by a wider alliance of stakeholders.</li> <li>The treatment of drivers at delivery sites is one of the key elements to improving the attractiveness of the profession, and thus tackling the driver shortage.&nbsp;</li> <li>Legal compliance and mutual respect will remain at the core of our common values.</li> </ul> <p>All interested industry stakeholders are encouraged to join the initiative and lead by example. Signatories will contribute to making the road transport industry a better place to work and must be committed to improving the current working conditions.</p> <p>Jost Group joined the international project by signing the Charter and commit to continue improving continuously the reception of drivers at company premises.</p> <p>We invite all logistics and industry stakeholders to join the charter on <a href=""></a></p> <p><strong>Life in motion.</strong></p>31231 evaluationJost Group obtains a BRONZE medal at the its first yearly EcoVadis evaluation!Mon, 04 Jan 2021 10:12:54 +01002021-01-04T15:55:26+01:00<p>EcoVadis&nbsp;is an independent rating tool, which analyses our sustainability efforts based on our current business processes.</p> <p></p> <p>The most relevant industry impact factors for Jost Group are to continue to closely care about the management of both our employees&rsquo; health and safety and reducing our environmental impact.&nbsp;</p> <p>Thanks to the screening carried out through this tool, we have improved our understanding of the importance of showing how we work on sustainability aspects.</p> <p>Doing it is crucial; showing it is absolutely necessary in a market where competition runs high!</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>As a European company active in the freight transport by road, rail and river and in connected warehousing services, it was time to determine Jost Group's position in this sector.&nbsp;</p> <p>To do so, we built your EcoVadis scorecard.</p> <ul> <li>Our global score is 50/100, which is quite high for the sector!</li> <li>The 62nd percentile means that our overall score is equal to or higher than 62% of all companies in the sector assessed by&nbsp;EcoVadis&nbsp;worldwide.</li> <li>On each of the 5 results (Global, Environment, Social, Ethics and Responsible Purchasing), we are above the average score for the sector of activity</li> </ul> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Each of these areas of attention and development leads us to focus on integrating them more and more precisely into our daily processes and ways of working.</p> <p>We will be carrying out a complete re-evaluation of our organization in 2021 and hope to earn SILVER or even potentially GOLD!</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Jost Group, as a socially responsible company, cares about the concerns and expectations of all stakeholders, whether they are within, close to or further away from our company.</p> <p>The daily construction, in a transparent and evolutionary way, is in line with our culture, which is materialized in the leitmotif of "<strong>life in motion</strong>"!&nbsp;</p>31207 Group has obtained its first label "COVID-19 Safe Zone"!What does this mean?Mon, 21 Dec 2020 09:55:54 +01002021-01-04T11:51:28+01:00<table width="100%"> <tbody> <tr> <td> <p>One of the major challenges for Jost Group is obviously the good health of its employees and partners, customers and suppliers!</p> <p>The expert auditors are currently evaluating at our sites the organizational changes we have made, the prevention and protection processes and equipment we have developed, and how they have been implemented and are maintained.</p> <p>The guidelines for these analyses have been established by the government and/or the sector to which we belong.

In addition, it ensures an increase in payload and greater flexibility with departures at precise times.</p> <p><strong>What is Jost Group's position with regard to this new connection?</strong></p> <p>Jost Group has been located at the Trilogiport of Li&egrave;ge since 2018 and has opened its first 44,000 m2 warehouse there. Three others will be built in the future, the second of which, planned for 2021, will begin construction. In total, Jost Group's warehouses will occupy 180,000 m2, on a plot of land almost twice as large (300,000 m2).&nbsp;</p> <p>This second warehouse will be the ideal site for imports/exports from China, specific preparations and packaging of goods with specialization in distribution, food and industrial.</p> <p>The technical and technological offer of these two warehouses allows Jost Group to respond perfectly to the demands of its customers through the integration of tailor-made IT solutions and services, ultra-modern equipment, perfect traceability, floor or rack storage.</p> <p>Of course, the arrival of this train from China involves customs controls.</p> <p>That is why Jost Group also carries out the verification and complete management of transport documents (customs, letter of credit, etc.), the management of loading/delivery appointments and reporting.</p> <p></p> <p>Jost Group - life in multi-motion&nbsp;</p>31093 and logistics, a male sector?At Jost Group, we do count 38% of female employees and are increasing this proportion every year!Wed, 25 Nov 2020 15:22:11 +01002020-12-01T11:14:19+01:00<p><strong></strong><strong>[38% is the percentage of the number of female employees at Jost Group. That's a rather reassuring figure, given that the transportation and logistics sector is very male-dominated?]</strong><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p>Logistics is a very interesting and infinitely exciting sector. To work in logistics, a candidate must have a broad vision in order to understand all the ins and outs of the flows and be able to optimise them, and at the same time be very precise because every detail counts. It requires&nbsp;critical organisational skills and a rigorous approach. And then, logistics, beyond decision support systems, information capture and processing and the essential tools to manage the thousands of pieces of information to be taken into consideration in a fluid and secure manner, is human. Exclusive and privileged contact with customers. The relationship with each driver and the optimisation of his capacities and skills. It is also an efficiency that is achieved through collaboration between all departments and business units. Without a good collaboration that is both structured and creative, process-oriented yet adaptive and agile, a logistics group would not be able to provide its customers with operational efficiency.</p> <p>Transportation and logistics are no longer a world as it was 10 to 15 years ago when "muscle, testosterone and autocratic management" was the "image that comes to mind".&nbsp;</p> <p>Logistics companies need a wide range of skills and abilities that are not gender-specific: conceptual and pragmatic intelligence, mental flexibility, creativity, diplomacy, rigour, tenacity, clear-sightedness and excellent stress management.</p> <p>They also need staff who possess values without which no company can function, such as transparency, honesty, loyalty to&nbsp;their managers, colleagues, clients and all the stakeholders in society, because we live in a globalised world, where, as we have seen with the Covid-19 crisis, we are all connected.</p> <p>Finally, the knowledge required to evolve in the logistics sector is not only human, as we have just seen, but also technical, technological, methodological and managerial, of course.</p> <p>Jost Group is an innovative group in many ways. In terms of human resources too, whether in terms of gender, nationalities (we have more than 65 nationalities in the Group), cultures (we are present in 10 countries), we have not waited for years to integrate all these parameters and make them definite assets for our development.</p> <p><strong style="font-family: -apple-system, BlinkMacSystemFont, 'Segoe UI', Roboto, 'Helvetica Neue', Arial, 'Noto Sans', sans-serif, 'Apple Color Emoji', 'Segoe UI Emoji', 'Segoe UI Symbol', 'Noto Color Emoji'; font-size: 1rem;">[What is the status of the positions these women hold?

It is no longer necessary to have characteristics that only men have, such as physical strength, to do the job.</p> <p>A boulevard is open for you, ladies!&nbsp;</p> <p>You can really make the difference, in this sector where customers expect deadlines to be met, care taken with their goods, accurate documentary and computerised reporting, real contact and professionalism in communication and that little touch of diplomacy that makes everything always go smoothly!</p> <p>Actions are carried out in this sense, in all our recruitments, in order to encourage more women to join our company.</p> <p><strong>[One of Jost Group's objectives would be to achieve equality?]</strong></p> <p>In quantity, most certainly!

A number of reflections have been carried out in order to best organise our work and activities to maintain our operational excellence during this unprecedented period. Extreme flexibility is a decisive element to the balance we need to maintain: both to respond to our customers' needs as well as simultaneously ensuring that we remain economically sound, safeguarding the company's long-term interests. </span></p> <p><span>In order to stay on course in the face of declining activity, we have adjusted our workforce in all our companies in Europe by resorting to economic unemployment. We have also eliminated all non-essential purchases in order to get through this particularly difficult economic period. Sharp cost management is extremely important in order to focus all human and financial resources on core activities. </span></p> <p><span>In addition, following government guidelines, we very quickly implemented teleworking for all employees whose work scope allowed it. Jost Group is proud to see that trust has been further strengthened within the teams, seeing how well our company functions despite the distances that separated our colleagues. </span></p> <p><span>Our employees have quickly become accustomed to managing their tasks remotely while maintaining the proactivity, communication and efficiency that are the hallmarks of the solid Group that we are. Digital technology has become firmly rooted in our communication and work methodology. Thanks to increased digitalisation we have been able to communicate, whether with our employees, drivers, customers or any other stakeholders, at a distance and with ease. </span></p> <p><span>We therefore favoured, in parallel with partial economic unemployment, teleworking, clearance of annual leave days, such as to look after children due to school closures, etc. Increased agility in personnel management, even for a large number of employees, combined with the good will of all staff, is a guarantee of sustainability for our company! </span></p> <p><span>We would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every member of our teams!</span></p> <p><span></span></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span><strong>And what about road heroes?</strong> </span></p> <p><span>Our drivers acted towards the population with great responsibility and efficiency. During this health crisis, it goes without saying that shops had to be restocked with food products and daily utilities as a matter of priority, hospitals with medical supplies, vehicles with diesel, etc. In addition, the confined people made massive online purchases and were able&nbsp;</span>to see the importance of drivers who ensure the delivery of the items ordered to their homes.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="page" title="Page 5"> <div class="layoutArea"> <div class="column"> <p><span> E-commerce increased by almost 10% over the period of containment. </span><span>[<em>Nielsen, COVID-19 : UN NOUVEAU PALIER ATTEINT EN FRANCE PAR LE E-COMMERCE</em>]</span><span>. </span></p> <p><span>Faced with these changes in consumption, everyone was able to appreciate the importance of the transportation sector. </span></p> <p><span>The drivers have shown dedication, sometimes at the expense of their comfort. They encountered difficult situations because some rest areas were inaccessible, the shops in the service stations were closed and leaving them without access to running water, showers or simple morning coffee. They were even refused access to toilets at some customers' homes for reasons of sanitary precaution. For our part, we have done everything possible to make our sanitary facilities and rest rooms not only accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, but also safe, with marked access paths, cleaning and disinfection several times a day, hydro-alcoholic gels at all counters and staff at each one, stocked with masks and gloves. </span></p> <p><span>We praised their professionalism and personal involvement and supported them on all fronts! </span></p> <p><span>It is no longer a secret that truck drivers are indispensable to our economy! They contribute to the growth of the gross domestic product (GDP) and job creation and they prevent shortages in our shops.</span></p> <p><span></span></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span><strong>What are the future prospects?</strong> </span></p> <p><span>The IRU (International Road and Transport Union) recently published: "Freight transport companies worldwide are expecting an average 18% drop in turnover in 2020, for a total of </span><span>&euro;</span><span>551 billion". </span><span>[<em>IRU, Global recovery on the line as road transport losses escalate</em>] </span></p> <p><span>While certain sectors such as distribution and e-commerce are doing well, the coronavirus pandemic is having a major impact on our transport systems, given the close interdependence between European supply chains, supported by a network of multimodal freight services, well established at Jost Group! </span></p> <p><span>Although the situation has evolved positively compared to March-April, the transportation sector continues to suffer from the pandemic. The period ahead suggests that we will again have to incorporate new changes. We are strong from a first experience, we have capitalised on new behaviours, new ways of working and we are ready to face what we will be given to live in this new Society. </span></p> <p><span>It is also thanks to government support that transportation companies, large and small, can hope to stay the course and provide future stability for all their employees. </span></p> <p><span>By moving the sector forward, we will be able to maintain a prosperous vision of investment in the environment, people, digital and technology. A transition to greener and digital road transport, supported by the increased competence of human actors, is a key to the future. </span></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="page" title="Page 6"> <div class="layoutArea"> <div class="column"> <p><span>Jost Group understands this ecological transition and has incorporated it into its vision for the foreseeable future! We continually invest in greener transportation. This goal is being achieved by purchasing 500 LNG trucks, an operational LNG station at our Herstal site, with 3 other stations in the pipeline, but also by upgrading our infrastructure to be more environmentally-friendly and sustainable. At the same time as this environmental transition, we are persevering with a digital transformation of our services, to remain at the forefront of the sector! </span></p> <p><span>In conclusion, this health crisis has many negative impacts, both on the economic, financial and social aspects.

These aspects can include over-consumption of fuel, aggressive and/or non-optimized driving, lack of anticipation leading to excessive braking, inefficient acceleration and leaving the engine running when the truck is at a standstill, to name a few.</p> <p>We teach the drivers how to optimize the use their vehicles and reduce fuel consumption, wear and tear of the mechanical parts of their trucks such as the kinematic chain, tyres and brakes.</p> <p>The training is given while physically accompanying the driver, either on a defined route or during the course of his working day. Many points are covered but the main aspect remains the driver's ability to anticipate!</p> <p>Thanks to good anticipation, the driver is led to better manage his brakes and therefore his tyres. He will also be more attentive on the road, preventing potential accidents and paying more attention to other road users.</p> <p>As the trainer is with the driver, he checks his driving habits and his attitude on the road. When the training takes place during his work day, we also analyze his skills and professionalism towards the customer locations to which he delivers, debriefing him on his weak points while reinforcing his strong points.</p> <p style="text-align: left;"><strong>[Which drivers are taking part in this training?]</strong></p> <p>Our internal eco-control team, which calculates the consumption of each truck in our fleet and the driving style of each driver, sends us a table for each traffic with colour codes.</p> <p>When a driver is in the "to improve" category, we look at his two-year history to analyze certain important points such as his accident rate, absenteeism, behavior, etc. If there is a recurrence of incidents, we try to understand what the problem is. It could be a misuse of the blind spot, a distraction or something else.</p> <p>Any problems are addressed during the training. If the occurrence of this was at the customer's premises, then we follow up with the driver his traffic to notify and explain the points that are lacking in good conduct.</p> <p>Of course, if the problem with the driver is serious, we immediately summon him and ask for a statement from him about the incident. A full debriefing and analysis are carried out with him and additional training actions are immediately carried out.</p> <p>It should be noted, however, that any driver can, if he wishes, follow this training without having been summoned.&nbsp;</p> <p>An even more complete eco-driving training course, lasting one day, is also given to each driver as part of the Certificate of Professional Aptitude (Code 95) every 5 years.</p> <p style="text-align: left;"><strong>[Since when have these eco-driving training courses been given?]</strong></p> <p>The operation has already been up and running since 2014. It was then integrated when the drivers passed their Code 95, which is mandatory.&nbsp;</p> <p>Since 2019 we have been coaching all our drivers, throughout the group, whether or not they have taken this training beforehand. Of course, priority is given to drivers who are less experienced in this ecological driving style.</p> <p>This represents a total of 2,000 drivers who will follow this training for the group. It is given in all European countries where Jost Group has training centers.&nbsp;</p> <p>We invest a lot of time and energy in this training. For example, in half a month here in September, we have already trained 100 drivers. We're running around a minimum of 10 drivers per day, 200 per month.&nbsp;</p> <p>Each trainer takes an average of 2 drivers per day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, with training lasting around 3 hours per session. However, if the driver&rsquo;s schedule does not permit it, we conduct the training while he&rsquo;s going about his daily routine and there the training can take up to 8 hours.&nbsp;</p> <p>This allows them to give this much more complete training, alternating theory and driving periods. It complements the half-day eco training courses.</p> <p style="text-align: left;"><strong>[What happens after the training course?]</strong></p> <p>Once the eco-driving has been given, we send the updated list back to our internal eco-control team. They analyze the drivers' behavior for one month to see if they have taken our remarks on board. If this is not the case, the driver is again called in to fine-tune the training.</p> <p>It is very rare, however, to see the same driver repeatedly.</p> <p style="text-align: left;"><strong>[Is this training paid for?]</strong></p> <p>Of course! The driver comes to work like a normal day, so to speak. The training is paid for. We also offer Code 95 courses to our drivers and they are even paid when they follow it.</p> <p style="text-align: left;"><strong>[Is eco-driving part of a greener transportation dynamic?]</strong></p> <p>Absolutely! Generally, most people only see the financial aspect...</p> <p>For them, eco-driving rhymes with lower fuel consumption and therefore economic gain. For a large fleet of vehicles like ours, consumption is a significant variable cost that we can therefore minimize. That&rsquo;s one of the goals but there's much more to this lower fuel consumption!&nbsp;</p> <p>The more important goal for us is on the ecological front! First of all, we generate less polluting greenhouse gas emissions. Secondly, the driver uses his gearbox, brake pads and discs less, thus optimizing the engine speed which also results in less wear and tear, less parts replacement, less purchase and less recycling, resulting in less energy and resource consumption. Add to this a better concentration on our roads that reduces the number of accidents, and everyone wins!</p> <p>And then we invested in 500 liquefied natural gas vehicles.</p> <p>This reduces our already substantially-reduced emissions even further!</p>30632 let's become heroes !Covid-19 - the good measuresTue, 08 Sep 2020 07:21:22 +02002020-09-08T10:52:45+02:00<p><span>The statistics on Covid-19 infections over the last few days are not that positive: Let's continue to be vigilant and continue those preventive measures, including wearing our protective masks.</span></p> <p><span></span></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span><iframe width="560" height="314" src="//" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe></span></p>30579 INCIDENTJOST GROUPThu, 20 Aug 2020 15:17:13 +02002020-08-24T15:40:38+02:00<p><strong>PONTBEEKLAAN INCIDENT: WHAT ABOUT IT?</strong></p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p>Following the recent events related to the dangerous driving of one of its Belgian drivers, Jost Group would like to shed full light on the treatment of this case.</p> <p>As a transport company, it is our duty to ensure the safety of all road users.

Being one of the leading companies in Wallonia requires, above all, an innovative and pioneering vision for the sector. In parallel with its substantial investments in its LNG project, a greener alternative to diesel, Jost Group is focusing on a promising sector in Belgian logistics and transportation.</p> <p>With the acquisition of a 300,000 m<sup>2</sup> plot of land on the site of the Trilogiport of Li&egrave;ge, Jost Group is keen to bring a breath of fresh air to the fervent city by building four modular warehouses on a total surface area of 180,000 m<sup>2</sup>. At present, 43,000 m<sup>2</sup> are already in use at the Trilogiport site.</p> <p>The objective and strength of this project lies in the multimodal component. The Trilogiport site gives rise to international transport and logistics. Being in the hinterland of 4 major North Sea seaports (Antwerp, Zeebrugge, Rotterdam and Dunkirk), a ship can, for example, deliver its cargo to one of these ports. This cargo, after customs clearance and verification of documents, is transported to the Trilogiport of Li&egrave;ge by barge.</p> <p>Once the barges are unloaded on the platform of the new Liege hub, the containers are transported to our warehouse. Jost Group then unloads the cargo, carries out visual checks, sorts and repackages the cargo if necessary, before shipping the goods with its own trucks to its main partners and customers in Belgium and all across Europe.</p> <p>Multimodality, through its combinations of multiple modes of transportation, enables Jost Group to continue to reduce its CO&sup2; emissions, in line with its ISO 14001 certification and the Lean &amp; Green charter, in ultra-modern infrastructures that are accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.</p> <p>In order to maintain its operational excellence as well as a quality service based on a high degree of flexibility for tailor-made solutions, Jost Group intends to start the construction of its second warehouse, which will eventually reach a built-up area of 60,000 m&sup2;. This additional space will complement the first warehouse located at Europe's largest river port by 2021.</p> <p>This will ensure efficient transportation and logistics for the 56 million inhabitants living within a 250 km radius of the Trilogiport of Li&egrave;ge.</p>29990 of SolidarityEveryone can act in their own way to help others during this pandemic.Fri, 08 May 2020 13:36:31 +02002020-05-12T10:50:14+02:00<p>At Jost Group, we are proud to count among our ranks employees, or their relatives, who act day after day to help and support the population.</p> <p>Whether it is by making masks, transporting goods, sponsoring kilometers travelled or supporting people in nursing homes, everyone is giving their time and resources for others in their own way.&nbsp;</p> <p>To read our solidarity action book, click <a href="/files/95390.pdf" target="_blank">here</a>.</p> <p></p> <p>Jost Group is very proud of their acts of solidarity and congratulates them on these great initiatives!</p> <p></p> <p>Thank you to them!</p> <p>life in motion</p>29903 YouDuring this health crisis, a simple thank you is sometimes worth more than a thousand words.Tue, 21 Apr 2020 11:20:03 +02002020-04-29T14:41:44+02:00<p><span>For the hospitals and their employees who are fighting tirelessly against this pandemic.</span></p> <p><span>For our partners who continue to trust us and collaborate with us to deliver our services.</span></p> <p><span>For our customers who trust us to deliver their goods to their destination.</span></p> <p><span>For all our employees, who work day after day to ensure that transportation and logistics run smoothly.</span></p> <p><span>For all the hands on deck everywhere, working to make daily life possible.</span></p> <p><span>For our families, who give us joy and support from near and far.</span></p> <p><span></span></p> <p><span>All Jost Group teams thank you!</span></p> <p><span><iframe width="562" height="315" src=";controls=0" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe></span></p> <p><span>Jost, life in motion</span></p>26117 and Drivers DayAn event for all truck drivers, their familly and friends !Wed, 12 Sep 2018 11:54:12 +02002020-04-29T12:40:35+02:00<p>Jost Group has matched a partnership with prestigious truck brands and with some key players in the employment sector to jointly create a unique event in Belgium in the world of Road Transport !</p> <p></p> <p><span>The <strong>Trucks and Drivers Day</strong> is a friendly event that invites the drivers, their families and friends and that is based on all aspects of road transport : Exhibition of ancestors, and new truck models, prototypes presentation, exceptional vehicles, equipment manufacturers, tuning, new technologies, competitions, workshop visits, miniatures, ... </span></p> <div align="center"><iframe width="420" height="236" src=";controls=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media"></iframe></div> <p><span></span></p> <p><span>Our goal was threefold: </span></p> <p><span>- Show the public that "<strong>truck drivers are nice</strong>" and that logistics is <strong>a job of the future for young people</strong> </span></p> <p><span>- Offer <strong>employment opportunities</strong> to new drivers, mechanics ... </span></p> <p><span>- &nbsp;Gather staff members in a fun <strong>activity for the whole family</strong> </span></p> <p><span><span></span></span></p> <p><span><span>Thierry Neuville and Bert Longin honoured us with their presence !

These rules will no doubt be further strengthened in the coming days. We are prepared for it.</p> <p>Jost Group is actively taking measures to combat and <strong>slow the spread of the virus, protecting the vulnerable members of our society by providing, at the same time, the transportation necessary to ensure business continuity as well as to meet the needs of the population.</strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Thus, from this March 14 <u>until April 3 included</u></strong>, Jost Group has taken the necessary preventive measures to considerably reduce the risk of transmission of the virus even though no member of the Jost Group has been infected with the Coronavirus.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>A <strong>contingency plan</strong> has been put in place, as a precaution:</p> <ul> <li>Compliance with <strong><u>hygiene and precautionary rules</u></strong> is imposed on all staff.</li> <li>The Jost Group <strong><u>prevention service</u></strong> monitors the spread of the virus by the hour, through the websites of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Belgian health authorities and health authorities in countries where Jost Group has subsidiaries and customers, as well the transportation sector organisations. <strong>This allows us to adapt our prevention policy very quickly and in a relevant manner</strong> in line with those recommendations.</li> <li>In anticipation of a potential shortage of drivers, we hired <strong><u>additional drivers</u></strong>. We are therefore currently sufficiently staffed to meet our customers&rsquo; needs should they arise.</li> <li>The drivers, as well as all the warehouse and workshop staff received <strong><u>strict precautionary instructions</u></strong> concerning hygiene, respecting social distance and practical organisation on a daily basis (limited presence in the facilities and operations).</li> <li><strong><u>Access</u></strong> to our sites is therefore limited, regulated and closed to outsiders who are not considered essential to the activities on those sites.</li> <li>Everyone was asked, right from the start of the epidemic, that <strong><u>if one of our employees were to show symptoms of the virus</u></strong>, to go home immediately and notify their manager, to contact their doctor and to notify us of the diagnosis. Measures are in place to have the vehicle / workstation disinfected by a specialised cleaning company.</li> <li><strong><u>Traceability exercises</u></strong> were carried out in order to test the procedures we have in place and, if necessary, to be able to warn all the people who could have been potentially exposed to the virus in a timely manner.</li> <li>Priority has been given to <strong><u>teleworking</u></strong> for employees for whom physical presence on site is not absolutely necessary.

After responding to this customer's request, Jost Group's drivers realized that it was not construction waste but household waste. A press release was therefore issued to clarify the facts (<span><a href="/actualites/actus/28577/"></a></span>).</p> <p>RTL 5 minutes brought the matter back to life in February 2020 with new information (<span><a href=""></a></span>).</p> <p>In this new opus, two pieces of information against Jost Group turn out to be <strong>erroneous</strong>. A member of the citizen collective "J'aime ma for&ecirc;t" indicates that he saw a Jost Group truck on 20 December 2019 in Hayange. This is unlikely for two reasons: firstly, Jost Group did not unload any goods in Hayange for the contractor Mondial Services at the time. Secondly, Jost Group has not carried out any further transport for Mondial Services since 4 November 2019, when Jost Group collaborated with law enforcement agencies to apprehend the suspects (see press release). It is true that, according to the police, <strong>several transport companies</strong> were involved and victims in this case, as shown in the photo in the article.&nbsp; It is therefore possible that the truck is part of another company than the Jost Group.</p> <p>Then, on 24 February 2020, Jost Group was contacted by a journalist from Politico who wanted to write an article on this subject and answered all her questions to clarify the situation (<span><a href=""></a></span>).</p> <p>The erroneous articles were relayed first by Het Laatste Nieuws, based on the RTL 5 minutes and Politico articles, followed by Le Soir.</p> <p>For Jost Group, these references are <strong>inaccurate</strong> because the company has at no time been aware of the fraudulent intentions of Mondial Services against whom Jost Group has brought civil proceedings in Belgium and against its two managers, in person.&nbsp; An investigation is under way at the Thionville police station and it is likely that the file is communicated to the public prosecutor's office.</p> <p>The logistics of waste transport is becoming more complex and it is important for Jost Group to comply with the regulatory framework and to protect the environment against the damaging effects of illegal landfills. Jost Group deplores these actions and once again apologizes to the people affected by this case, but for Jost Group the responsibility lies entirely with the polluter, Mondial Services.</p> <p>Our desire is to be transparent with all stakeholders, including the press, but it is impossible to avoid a rigorous analysis of the facts and it goes without saying that we deplore all prejudicial references against Jost Group concerning these situations.&nbsp; We therefore request a right of reply as soon as possible.</p> <p>* <a href=" afval~a3613c8d/"> afval~a3613c8d/</a></p>29429 of a scrap yardCase studyWed, 26 Feb 2020 10:06:07 +01002020-02-26T12:18:58+01:00<p>Since 2012, Jost Group has been managing a scrap yard and collecting scrap metal, an additional activity to transport and logistics.&nbsp;</p> <p>What does this mean exactly and what is the role of Jost Group?</p> <p></p> <p>The company collects 141 containers on all sites that produce scrap metal waste within a radius of 30km. This collection is adapted to the production rate of these different sites.</p> <p>About 1.000 containers per month, reaching from 7 to 12 tons, are brought to the scrap metal yard of Ougr&eacute;e. This represents approximately 9.000 tons per month which are unloaded 24/7.</p> <p>Jost Group bought in two cranes for its site, to be able handle the waste. The containers get emptied and sorted according to type (galvanised, coated, unlined).</p> <p>Once sorted, the scrap metal gets loaded and shipped by truck with tipper trailer to the end-use sites. These are specific tippers as they have to be very sturdy, so that the scrap metal cannot pierce them. There are about 15 vehicles dedicated to this type of transport every day.</p> <p></p> <p>Once again, this type of transport shows that Jost Group provides its customers with a high-quality, custom-made services. Thanks to our diversified fleet of vehicles and continuous investment into our equipment, we are very flexible and able to maintain our high performance level, with the vision of being a reference European partner in integrated logistics.</p> <p></p> <p>YouTube video available <a href="">here</a>.</p>28577 release on household waste deposited at two natural sites in the Communauté d'agglomération de Longwy (CAL).Jost Group denounces: household waste dumped on two natural sites in the Urban Community Mon, 18 Nov 2019 14:44:03 +01002020-02-25T16:02:11+01:00<p>In mid-October 2019, Jost Group responded to the request of a new client, Mondial Services, whose head office is located in Brussels, Belgium and is active in the recovery, valorization, treatment and recycling of all types of industrial and/or toxic waste. This company wanted to transport construction waste (bricks and other construction material), special transportation for which Jost Group has a permit to carry out. This transportation was to be carried out from Gewule (near Lille, on the Belgian&nbsp;border&nbsp;side) to Brecht, in the Antwerp region.</p> <p><span>It appears that, on several occasions, the final unloading destinations had been modified by Mondial Services, first by reversing the place of loading and destination (Brecht - Gewule) and ultimately redirecting the loads to Thionville, then Saulnes or Redange in France.</span><span></span></p> <p><span>In addition, as is common practice in the case of transportation outside urban areas, Jost Group drivers had to contact a person on arrival who would guide them through the unloading process. Jost Group had no reason to be suspicious.</span><span></span></p> <p><span>What brought to Jost Group's attention was, first, the unusual speed imposed on the drivers by the on-site coordinator and, second, the fact that one of our drivers reported that one of the loads was not construction waste, but rubbish. Each driver concerned prepared an official written statement detailing the facts and forwarded it to the police.</span><span></span></p> <p><span>The police manage to corroborate the information which we provided. On November 4th, one of our drivers, in collaboration and with the discreet presence of the police, made a&nbsp;trip in order&nbsp;to trap the suspects, allowing the police to arrest the unloader on the spot, called the "customs officer" in the article published in the newspaper Republican Lorrain.</span><span></span></p> <p><span>According to the police, other transportation companies other than the Jost Group were also involved and are victims in this case. It is therefore the responsibility of the police to investigate this case thoroughly. As a carrier, Jost Group was at no time aware of the fraudulent intentions of the&nbsp;client.</span><span></span></p> <p><span>Jost Group is particularly concerned about the environment and has a real strategy towards greener transportation. It does not support these actions and apologises to the communities and municipalities affected by these spills, which have inevitably damaged the various natural areas.</span><span></span></p> <p><span>Jost Group contacted the municipality and CAL directly to explain the facts in detail.</span><span></span></p> <p><span>Jost Group's legal department has been alerted and will take the necessary actions against the company in question.</span><span></span></p> <p><span>V&eacute;ronique Hustin</span><span></span></p> <p><span>Source: *<a href=""></a></span></p>29409 Truck AwardA reward worthy of our work!Fri, 21 Feb 2020 10:12:32 +01002020-02-21T14:19:32+01:00<p><span class="ember-view"><span>What a wonderful reward! </span></span></p> <p><span class="ember-view"><span>Last night, Jost Group received the<em><strong> Green Truck Award</strong></em> at the 2020 edition of the <em>T&amp;L Awards</em>.</span></span></p> <p><span class="ember-view"><span>This award is the result of a colossal investment in our LNG trucks and the stations to supply them.

Efforts to reduce carbon emissions from transport and logistics activities are well targeted. JostGroup demonstrated through its detailed costs-targeted action plan, its ability to <strong>reduce its CO2 emissions by 20% in 5 years</strong>, and won the Lean and Green label. At the end of the 5 year period, meaning for us the end of 2016 (our reference year is 2011), if the objective of the action plan is actually achieved, we&rsquo;ll &nbsp;receive our first <strong>star </strong>Lean and Green.</p> <p>TOWARDS AN INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY ...</p> <p>The Lean and Green concept extends gradually in Europe. This is the case in the Netherlands, Italy and Belgium, Flanders and Wallonia which work together to support the candidate companies. Many companies having their operations abroad, it is logical for the efforts to be internationalized ! The leading platoons are then becoming the ambassadors of the <strong>Lean and Green Community</strong> that is rapidly growing. This is the case of JostGroup who wants an always greener business !</p> <p>In parallel to this program, JostGroup is engaged in a process of preparation of an <strong>ISO 14001</strong> certification and is establishing its complete <strong>carbon footprint</strong>.

Our excellent experience operating Stralis Euro 5 EEV diesel vehicles has seen us establish a solid relationship with IVECO, supported by a very strong service network across Belgium.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&ldquo;This played in a key role in our decision to take the next step on the path to sustainability, choosing the IVECO Stralis NP as the best solution. We&rsquo;re proud to be amongst the early adopters of this new technology : our goal for the next three years is to have 35% of our fleet running on LNG. Our Group is also supporting this with an investment in our own LNG refueling infrastructure, with plans to open up to three owned filling stations within our major operating centres in Belgium, in Herstal, Waarloos and Ghlin.&rdquo;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Demand for LNG is growing rapidly across Europe, with the German Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) having identified LNG as the best solution for long-distance road transport in the short term and for the next 10 to 15 years. When running on fossil derived natural gas, CO2 emissions are up to 10% lower than its diesel equivalent, depending on mission and gas composition &ndash; rising to up to 95% lower with the use of biomethane.</p> <p>With IVECO&rsquo;s natural gas technology, the level of particulates are negligible and the NOx 50% lower compared to diesel over long haul missions. <span>It is an undeniable asset in terms of ecology and health!</span><span></span><br />It is also much quieter, reducing engine noise levels by around 50% &ndash; aiding deliveries in urban areas.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Jost Group is a family business employing more than 2,800 members of staff, with offices spanning 10 countries in Europe and North Africa.

It will also enable Jost Group to continue cutting its CO&sup2; emissions, in line with&nbsp;the ISO 14001 certification of Jost Management and the Lean &amp; Green charter. The LogProject development company is coordinating the project with the two Walloon building companies we had the pleasure of choosing: Wust from Malm&eacute;dy and Eloi from Sprimont.</p> <p>Li&egrave;ge Trilogiport is designed to host European distribution centres, with a direct connection to the container terminal located along the Albert canal. Businesses on the site have logistics warehousing facilities in the immediate vicinity of the Albert canal, which connects Li&egrave;ge to Antwerp in 14 hours and to Rotterdam in 24 hours. "The geographical location of Li&egrave;ge Trilogiport is a major asset for the platform," explains Emile-Louis Bertrand, General Manager of the Li&egrave;ge Port Authority. We are located in the hinterland of four major North Sea seaports (Antwerp, Zeebrugge, Rotterdam and Dunkirk) and at the heart of a market of 56 million consumers!"</p> <p>This very substantial investment by Jost Group enables the Li&egrave;ge Region to strengthen its position in advanced logistics in Europe, while also providing job opportunities. In short, this project is a good example of a constructive partnership between the Region, the municipality, the Li&egrave;ge Port Authority, business and civil society.</p>11431 Group strengthens its position in warehouse logistics as well as in the distribution sector Luxembourg + Belgium / The Netherlands !Situated at the intersection of the "Grande Region" : Luxembourg - Belgium - France Fri, 24 Feb 2012 09:33:42 +01002017-12-12T14:09:20+01:00<p>On December 7th, 2017, the 183 people (of which 115 drivers), the 100 motor vehicles, the 170 trailers (tautliners, vans and temperature controlled trailers) as well as the facilities of Messancy (40.000m&sup2;) and Molinfaing-Neufch&acirc;teau (12.500m&sup2;) of the <strong>Group Charlier</strong> have joined the European group, Jost Group, the large family of Kangaroo.</p> <p>The Group Charlier has a turnover of more than 25.000.000&euro; mainly based on three activities: logistics, distribution and general cargo.</p> <p>Thanks to their geographical position, the logistic activities (supply of the production chain, picking, wrapping and reconditioning, traditional warehousing) will reinforce the presence of Jost Group in the Greater Region.</p> <p>Jost Group is now particularly more active in distribution on the territory of Luxembourg through the takeover of Nadin last March. This distribution activity will thus be boosted by the arrival of the <strong>Group</strong> <strong>Charlier</strong>.&nbsp; As a well-known actor in the distribution sector of goods, packed in parcels from one kilo to a whole pallet, the Group Charlier possesses a number of assets to carry out this type of deliveries within 24h throughout the <strong><u>Benelux</u></strong>.</p> <p>By selling its business, the family Charlier, wants to offer prospects for development and an ambitious position to its Group. Eric Charlier (53 years old) will continue to lead the development of the company within Jost Group in the future.</p> <p><strong>Jost Group: 300,000m&sup2; of warehouses, 2900 people throughout Europe and the Maghreb, 1500 motor vehicles, 3300 towed vehicles, T.O. 2016 : 332.000.000&euro;.</strong></p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p>The two businesses were brought together by the company Intraco.</p>11433 Group strengthens its position in Air Freight !And from now on, focuses on international development !Fri, 24 Feb 2012 09:37:55 +01002017-11-24T21:03:56+01:00<p>With the acquisition of <strong>Kuypers Cargo Service</strong>, a well-known player in the aircargo road and express transport, active in the Netherlands and Germany, Jost Group will set up in Maastricht (NL) and K&ouml;ln (D), which brings the number of countries already welcoming the operational and administrative teams of the logistician to 11.</p> <p>This activity, which is present within Jost Group since 2013, will therefore become an important business line in the context of its international development. The Group is located in the golden triangle for air freight: Amsterdam - Paris - Frankfurt, near the harbors of Antwerp and Rotterdam and at the center of the regions in which the main container terminals in terms of rail and river transport are located. &nbsp;Furthermore, Jost Group is also completing the construction of its own multimodal platform on the Trilogiport site in Li&egrave;ge.</p> <p>KCS is a family company, which employs 180 people (including 140 drivers). Marcel and Paul Kuypers made their business grow significantly, shaping it to a dynamic and healthy company. Then they thought it was essential to move to a higher stage of growth, in the context of an increasingly competitive market and the crucial importance of technological innovations. So, the integration into a Group with enough financial substance and a strong structure turned out to be the best solution.</p> <p>On 24<sup>th</sup> November 2017, the 180 people, the 100 motor vehicles, the 120 trailers (a majority of rollerbeds to be added to 130 already owned by the Group), as well as the facilities in Maastricht and K&ouml;ln will join the large family of Kangaroo. A great challenge for Marcel Kuypers (46 years old), who will continue to lead, &nbsp;the development of the company to the future, within Jost Group and supported by this new environment.</p> <p>KCS means a turnover of more than &euro; 22,000,000 generated by high quality human resources, continuously trained to the requirements of the transport and logistics sector, with experience, recognized by professionals and customers. Air cargo, temperature-controlled transport, transport of medical products, express transport, warehouse logistics (picking, kitting, packing, distribution) and real estate represent all the activities of this newcomer at Jost Group, which continues to develop itself in intelligent, interconnected and integrated logistics!</p> <p><strong>Jost Group: 300,000m&sup2; of warehouses, 2700 people throughout Europe and the Maghreb, 1400 motor vehicles, 3100 towed vehicles, T.O. 2016 : 307.000.000&euro;.</strong></p>23875 Day 9 Septembre 2017 : Jost Group hires in a creative way !A complete success ! Mon, 31 Jul 2017 11:35:01 +02002017-11-13T16:36:47+01:00<p>Economic activity continues to grow everywhere in Europe and the transport and logistics sector is one of the most liable barometers to measure that. At the same time, there has been a lack of lorry drivers for many years and it becomes increasingly difficult for a transport company to find candidates to fill their vacancies.</p> <p><iframe src=";showinfo=0" width="470" height="264" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe></p> <p><strong>Our goal: 100 new jobs!</strong></p> <p>In order to compensate for the lack of local workers, Jost Group organized a Jobs Day on its site of Bierset, last Saturday, 9<sup>th</sup> September. The potential candidates could get more information about the job and the possibilities Jost Group could offer them. They were asked to take some practical tests and taught the key importance of the professional driver in the process of a comprehensive service that is perfect for the customer.</p> <p><strong>The results:</strong> More than <strong>50</strong> drivers passed the steering and driving tests and will start an integration training at Jost Group from the beginning of this week onwards - a complete success!</p> <p>Moreover, <strong>more than 150 candidates came to introduce themselves </strong>during the day, for various kinds of jobs: CE driver, coachbuilder, mechanic and forklift driver.</p> <p>The company would also like to take advantage of the resonance this event got in the press and among its partners, in order to hire another few dozen of new drivers. The candidates keep coming and the tests can be organized continuously on all Belgian sites of the group. Simply write an email to <a href=""></a></p> <p><strong>Promote youth and women employment </strong></p> <p>Several players of the employment and training sector, like Le Forem, the social funds for Transport and Logistics, the Don Bosco School, the ADG, Actiris and Mirel have joined the initiative of Jost Group to facilitate the recruitment of people who at the moment do not have the necessary competences as they did not acquire them in their previous trainings.</p> <p>The idea is to encourage young people who do not know the driver&rsquo;s job yet, and to facilitate their entrance in training pathways to anticipate retirement dates of the drivers who are currently working, given the inverted age structure in the sector and the intensified lack of drivers that is to come the next years.</p> <p>Women are also wanted at Jost Group, they are excellent candidates because of their exactness and their capacity to adapt quickly. So, we also call for those women! Jost Group has the advantage to offer nearly custom-made jobs to its drivers, given the large diversity of its customers and activities.</p> <p>Jost Group has been investing time and money in the recruitment of its team for many years, to make it possible to offer qualitative local jobs. Since 2008, 921 jobs have been created under a Belgian working contract and every year the company organizes more than 30,000 hours of training sessions. After the development of the Trilogiport, this is additional proof of Jost Group&rsquo;s willingness to invest in its local area. The Trilogiport will make Jost Group&rsquo;s working surface grow from 150.000m&sup2; to 330.000m&sup2; in the province of Liege, the first phase of investment of 17 to 20 million euro has started already and will be ready at the end of this year.</p>14148 this month of November 2017, the company Skiptrans celebrates its 10th anniversary !A performing Team !Mon, 06 May 2013 22:15:20 +02002017-11-13T15:31:23+01:00<p>A company that is growing, like the entire Jost Group and that has projects and concretizations that show its dynamism !<br /><br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; - Move to new offices, larger, to give the staff a greater working comfort <br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; - Organization of a Jobs Day, November 4, which helped to support the recruitment actions and spreads the image of the company throughout the country <br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; - Quality Audit ISO 9001, November 8, by Bureau Veritas International<br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; - A project to build additional offices and the possibility to build a warehouse, according to the needs of its customers, is on the agenda for 2018, on a site of 38,000m&sup2;</p> <p>French classes are also organized for more then one year, for all the employed staff who wish to perfect the mastery of this language.</p> <p>We wanted to take advantage of these events to thank each member of the planning, training and administration teams for the excellent work they do every day !</p> <p>We also wanted to highlight, Mr. Schreher who is a driver at Skiptrans since the 1st day !</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><span><strong>Mulțumesc tuturor !</strong></span></p>23637 life in my cabinThe drivers like their living space !
